Creekmore Claims Women's Senior Stroke Play Championship

Amarillo - Carolyn Creekmore from Dallas came from two strokes behind to claim the 2016 Women’s Senior Stroke Play Championship.  With three holes to play, Creekmore and 36-hole leader Anna Schultz were separated by a single stroke, but Schultz found the deep rough on hole #16.  Creekmore hit her approach shots close on the final two holes to close out the Championship with two stress free pars.  Lubbock’s Marian Barker posted the lowest round of the day, a one-over par 72, to move into third place.
